The official Denton Independent School District (ISD) logo reflects the mission of the district: Denton ISD: Empowering lifelong learners to be engaged citizens who positively impact their local and global community. The logo incorporates the Denton County Courthouse in upper left-hand corner of the “D” to reflect the Denton community and the focal point of the where the community often gathers to celebrate. The multicolored pieces of the globe in the lower right-hand corner of the “D” represent diversity and opportunity.
The "swoosh" represents the concept of movement with students moving into the future globally. We are rapidly becoming a global community and preparing students to not only be a part of the local community, but a part of the larger global community. The economy has changed. The world has changed. We embrace it and move forward preparing our students to survive in a global marketplace. Many forward thinkers (i.e. Seth Godin, Dan Pink, Gary Hamel, etc.) refer to our current world as “the connection economy,” the “idea economy,” and/or the “creative economy” as we move past “the knowledge economy."
To have both the local (i.e. the courthouse) and the global aspect in the same graphic represents how students can be in both worlds at the same time… In today’s world, we have the opportunity to live in one community and sell our products, ideas, and/or services across the globe. The Denton ISD Educational Improvement Council (EIC) *intentionally* did NOT use the word “communities” in the mission statement because we already live in both worlds in which contributions can be made to both at the same time (thus why the mission ends in the community).
The logo is a graphic element that uses official type fonts (Century Gothic and Eurostar Regular Extended), colors, and a specific configuration. Do not attempt to recreate it in any way. The following specifications apply to use of the institution’s primary logo in print.
The logo may be reproduced in in full color (with either black or white font), in one color, or a grayscale version.
When the logo is reproduced in one color, it must be black or white.
Using the D logo alone
In certain limited circumstances, such as the need to use the institutional logo in a size that would be too small to read or on apparel that requires embroidery, it is acceptable to use only the D in one color (black or white) or in full color. Please contact communications department if you have a question about appropriate use of the logo.
